    Lazy Jacks

    My lazyjacks/lazybag control blocks are mounted on the mast above the spreaders, about 3/4 mast height.

    Need for speed

    I found this on the german yacht.tv website. This little thing will apparently do 30 knots. @Jackdaw - would this be fast enough for you? No cabin, but you would need a longer lake quickly ;-) This is from last year and might have been posted already, fun to watch nevertheless.

    PEX vs Reinforced PVC

    Reinforced PVC will not crack if frozen - I speak from experience. Not sure about PEX.

    Coast 250 - power sailor from UK. S

    I did not find pricing, but I was not looking. Based on dimensions, this boat *should* fit in a sea-can, so shipping cost will be reasonable (considering anything sailing related is expensive and it is not an inexpensive hobby). I feel that considering declining sales of sailboats world-wide, a...

    Coast 250 - power sailor from UK. S

    I am not into power sailors. Not my cup of tea. With that in mind, I run onto this new boat out of UK - Coast 250 by Swallow Yachts. I have to say it is surprisingly refreshing and not bad looking at all. The company must have been following closely the demise of MacGregor/Tatoo line and at...

    On the bricks

    My first thought: Schräge Musik. It is WW2 upward firing weapon. Was very successful German design.

    Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 349

    I always liked the lines of the 349 and this boat will be on my list should I move to a larger sailing area in the future.

    Boat Capacity Limits

    Ha, the PDF is saved and I plan to digest it at my bedtime. Hopefully tonight. Unless I fall asleep. Thank you dlochner. Thank you Jackdaw for your input. I know of number of boats (sail) that have "floating" CE cert based on the occupancy, for example CE B-4 or C-6.

    Boat Capacity Limits

    I am not trying to start a fiery debate, but that information (no requirement for capacity label) could indicate the vessel has not gone through any sort of real life testing about the safety and righting forces based on occupancy? Has this changed for new(er) boats sold in US? Just curious.

    Boat Capacity Limits

    According to the formula in the link, I can have 18 people onboard on my S27!!! (27x10)/15 =18 According to the manufacturer's plate (CE Cat B) on the boat, maximum 6 people onboard. I'll stick to the manufacturer's plate capacity.

    stack-pak issues

    Pat, We do have a member at the marina with 272LE and lazybag - he is out on the water all the time and to the best of my knowledge has no issues with his lazybag system. I'd say your setup needs some 'tweaking'... please note how the lazyjack lines are run on this boat.
